Strategic Sourcing and Procurement

The lowest price doesn’t always mean the lowest cost. Scrap rates, defects, unreliable delivery and other issues can also be quantified for determining the actual cost of buying from a supplier. O’Keefe can assist in analyzing all aspects of a client’s supply chain.

We’re experienced in international supply chain analysis and understand the complexities involved in sourcing from developing countries where quality control, intellectual property protection, ocean logistics and contract enforcement all pose potential added cost and risk to the supply chain.

From determining the financial stability of key suppliers to evaluating the total cost of getting the product to our client’s production facility, we evaluate the “all in” cost of a supplier’s product and assess the risk associated with sourcing.
